The NZ Transport Agency advises road users they can expect delays on State Highway 2 between Omokoroa Road and Esdaile Road this Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd July between 7am and 5pm while tree felling & maintenance work is carried out.
This is a hazardous operation that requires all traffic to be stopped while each tree is felled. Stop/Go traffic management will be in place, with a 30km/h temporary speed limit through the work site.
A detour is available for Northbound light vehicles only to minimise delays at the work site. The detour route is Left into Youngson Road, Right into Old Highway, Right into Esdaile Road to return to SH2.
Northbound Heavy Vehicles and all southbound traffic will continue to use SH2 under Stop/Go traffic management.
The work may continue on a following weekend.
